Saw a bit of movement in there for the first time in ages last night on my way home from work.

I wonder what will be gracing our parade in the near future in that spot?

I was posted a notice a few weeks ago about an extension being built out the back, and have heard rumours about it being converted into a residential property. Not sure about any specifics though.

Do you refer to an extension to the ground floor flat?

I think the shop is still a commercial let. Unless there has been an application for a change of use...

Yep that's the one.

I only heard the residential bit from a neighbour who was having an unhappy 2.30am rant at the entire street a few days before Christmas.

I really hope it's not going to be turned into residential use Sad

I hope it's not either.

The summarised (and censored) rant: All the current residents (besides the ranter) should move to Dulwich, as that's what we're apparently trying to be.

I heard it was going to be another nail bar...not sure if we need one seeing as we have the fab Neroli already.

Neroli is ridiculously overpriced. A reasonable nail bar would be great.

...and one in Corfton Park called Venus run by a really competent group of girls

Looks like nail bars are the way forward

Wouldn't suprise me if it's a nail bar looking at the people doing the refit

Why are there so many nail bar and hairdressers in this area?
Possibly a selfish question as I'm a bald, heterosexual male!

As someone pointed out in response to a similar question on the SE26 forum, it's because you can't (yet) get your hair cut and whatever-it-is-they-do-to-your-nails-in-a-nailbar done over the internet.

cheap one by the post office is indeed cheap but my cuticles were left raw and bleeding. not great. Have been meaning to try Venus, because Lily Angel in Forest Hill is pretty awful too!
